Github Web editor: Edit any repo with just a press

Do you want to have your mind blown? 🤯

Check this new feature of Github.

Just go to any of the repo you like and just press .. Yeah, you have seen it right. Just press on the period (.) sign on the keyboard and your mind will blow. This will open the code editor in the browser with the files of Github Repo.

Don't forgot to watch this video.

Very awesome!

I didn't watch the video but followed the instructions. VS Code right in the browser opened up to whatever repo / branch you are on when you pressed the period (.) key.

A great feature is if you sync your extensions from your locally installed VS Code, you can access them in the in-browser editor.
